Dell Inspiron Mini 12 (1210) confirmed on Dell site

The Dell Inspiron Mini 12, aka the Inspiron 1210 or "Dell's 12-inch netbook", has shown up on the company's site, complete with a service manual and other details.  Larger than the existing Dell Inspiron Mini 9, which uses an 8.9-inch LCD, the Mini 12 has a 12.1-inch 1,280 x 800 display and the pick of Intel's Atom Z520 or Z530 processors paired with 1GB of DDR2 RAM.

More Inspiron Mini 12 details, plus ports and WWAN connectivity, after the cut

Connectivity includes 10/100 ethernet, Bluetooth and WiFi, together with optional 3G WWAN with a built-in SIM card reader behind the battery.  Ports are the usual three USB 2.0, VGA out, audio in/out and a memory card slot.

A 1.3-megapixel camera lurks in the screen bezel, there are 3-cell or 6-cell batteries and the whole thing weighs, battery-depending, around 2.73-pounds.  OS is a choice of Ubuntu or Windows Vista, from the look of the setup manual; in fact the only thing we don't really know is price and actual release date.
